From the outside, its imposing and the architecture reminds me of classical greek building and the most striking piece inside this mall is the grand clock powered by water. Its luxurious in the eye as well since yachts are parked fashionably in front of the mall. Otherwise, the exterior looks grand but the mall itself is easy to navigate. Shops... More

Very handy (for my work) to have a quick bite to eat lunchtime with choices. Also the Sultan Centre is well stocked with speciality foods so handy for food shopping. Usually take a coffee overlooking the marina that offers a very pleasant vista. There is other shopping as well if that is one's need. Parking is usually not a problem,... More

Souk Sharq isn't as big as Avenues Mall but surely one can spend quiet time shopping and walking around. Lots of fast food restaurants as well as Sultan Center Shopping Mall is there for those who want to buy home stuffs. Overall: 5 Stars

With lots of new and large shopping malls popping up everywhere in Kuwait the last few years, it is easy to see Souk Sharq is neither. Nevertheless, Souq Sharq has a pleasant atmosphere and is located beautifully between the yacht harbour (marina) and the sea. Sultan Center, the large supermarket is really great..

The mall is well maintained and unique as it is surrounded by the sea and large Marina. The anchor store is Sultan Center which is probably the best place for buying fine food in Kuwait. Restaurants at the mall are limited to fast food and casual dining and most are older brands.

Until recently, with more modern upmarket malls coming up in Kuwait, Souk Sharq used to be one of Kuwait's better malls. The location is still set very well, on a small reclamation just off the coastal road at Sharq near Salmiya, it has two bridges connecting it to the road with a small yachting marina between them. Kuwait is very... More
